I want to show my chickens, but am not sure how and where to start. I "showed" 2 hens at the county fair last year, but was the only exhibitor in the open- all the others were kids, and the judges acted like I was silly to show my chickens since I'm not a kid. I don't have any chickens to show this year, but will next year, and I am thinking about taking them to the state fair. I'm going to check it out this year as a visitor, and talk to some of the exhibitors if they will talk to me. Are there any other shows/events for showing chickens besides county and state fairs? How do most shows run/etc?
